This summer we had a list of things we wanted to do. There is still about 3 weeks left to our summer and we are working on completing most of them. I posted closer to the beginning of summer that showed we started it off with a bang and have done some dribs and drabs posts since then.
|Butterfly room is always a favorite stop for me. Julia finds it a bit warm but was up for it and Emma is happy to check it out as long as there are other people in the room she can watch.|
|Digging for dinosaur bones|
|Fossil Prep lab had a learning session. They told us about a dinosaur they are currently working on that was found in MT. How did we never see the fossil prep lab before on all our visits?|
|Panning for shark teeth. Cut out for a wheelchair is quite nice, but it falls short in being truly accessible unless you have super long arms.|
|Starring in their own dinosaur movie.|
The park had the oldest remaining original fountain in the city was up and running, a small-ish playground with an accessible swing and monkey bars, a snack shack, a carousel and mini-golf. The park is in the historic district so everything was USA themed. The carousel even had a bald eagle instead of a horse in one slot and that is what Emma rode. Julia rode a dolphin, although I'm not exactly sure how that made it's way onto the national themed carousel? The mini-golf had obstacles made out of local historic landmarks and I just loved it! I have a feeling we'll be back.
|When did you get SOOOO BIG???!!!! Emma is staring right though me to the campers running all over the place!|
|Such a cutie pie! This girl melts my heart.|
|Is that a hole in one?????|
|Boys....need we say more??!!!|
